“In the pursuit of wrongdoing, one steps away from God. Of course there’s a price.”
What would you do if you had doubts? What would you do if you couldn’t prove them?
The Bronx, New York; 1964; St Nicholas, a Catholic church and school. The steel-gloved, iron-willed Principal, Sister Aloysius, has her suspicions of the progressive-minded Father Flynn and instructs her fellow sisters to keep an eye on him. When the young, naïve Sister James notices a change in her student Donald Miller, the only black student in the school, after observing the closeness between him and Father Flynn, she reports her observations to Sister Aloysius. Aloysius is convinced of Flynn’s wrongdoing, Flynn professes his innocence and sermonises on gossip, Donald’s mother begs her to leave it alone and Sister James implores her to find hard evidence. But Sister Aloysius has a feeling, and no amount of doubt will dissuade her pursuit of the truth.
